The Last Thing I Remember
Late in his life my grandfather worked at a place where you could get: ham & eggs, smokes, coffee and, inexplicably, framed rock star photos. Whenever my father took me there I’d sit at the counter and name the musicians.
On a June afternoon my father asked me to pick a favorite photo and his father got the stepladder to take it down. This means my reward for finishing first grade was Fun-Dip and a picture of Pete Townsend. It’s my only memory of the three of us together, but that’s fine with me.
